bbP Members Only


Retricts bbPress to logged in/registered members.

All users who try to view any bbPress page and are not logged in will be redirected to the site homepage or optionally a URL provided in the settings.

This plugin also disables all bbPress shortcodes for non-members except the login, register, and reset password shortcodes.

Note: This plugin does not work when bbPress is used in conjunction BuddyPress.


Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the plugin from Plugins page.

Or install from the dashboard like all the cool kids do.

Then go to Settings > Forums > Members Only to optionally set your redirect URL.


Does the job!

Was looking around different role plugins and this just did that job smoothly and easily!
